Nous nous y trouvons donc au plus près du travail freudien, pas à pas et mot à mot, et ce dans l. a. plus totale des indiscrétions. C’est un réel reportage de paparazzi de l. a. psychanalyse qui s’offre à nous. On est prié de se rincer l’oeil !
Ce manuscrit a voyagé de Vienne à Buenos Aires, avant de revenir à Paris dans les malles de son traducteur, le docteur Alberto Espinosa y Fiszbein. De nombreux innovations y apparaissent : le complexe de los angeles belle-mère morte, le lien de Moïse au Bi-monothéisme, l’objet digestif-transitoire, de même que l’ébauche d’une troisième topique (incluant le Moi-Moi, example centrale chez les narcissiques). De nombreux Witz y figurent (dont aucun ne recule devant l. a. médiocrité).
Enfin, ce texte montre toute l’importance du hareng pour l’histoire de los angeles psychanalyse, une details souvent occultée, ce qui constitue un déni qui en dit long.

Un texte traduit, présenté, commenté et détourné par le docteur Alberto Espinosa y Fiszbein.
